How to buy Kusama in Sweden
Is KSM a good investment in Sweden?
Kusama was released in 2019 with an initial price of $1.71. It experienced a price drop very soon after its release, but it never dropped less than $1. Kusama crypto owners might have been disappointed with this price, but 2020 was a surprising year for them because the Kusama price suddenly mounted to $14 in July and ended the year at the price of $60. The Kusama price continued to rise until May 2021, when it reached its highest record of $624.78. That shows how profitable Kusama was in only two years. Kusama had many fluctuations in 2022 and dropped to $28 at the end of the year.
The history of Kusama shows it was a profitable investment. However, it won’t guarantee its profitability in the future. Therefore, you need to check other factors to decide if Kusama is a good investment. One thing that can help you have a broader overview of the future of this coin is checking the price predictions that are made by analysts and crypto experts. Most of them believe Kusama might have good days to come, and its price may go up to $225 by 2025. They also predict that in the long-term it might rise more and mount to $600 again by 2030. However, you should notice that these are just predictions. Your decisions shouldn’t be only on these numbers. Check the news about Kusama the day you decide to purchase it.
What is Kusama ?
Kusama is a decentralized cryptocurrency network created in 2019. The main purpose of creating such a network was to enable developers to have their dedicated blockchain on this network. It means the Kusama network is a platform for developers to test the projects that are going to run or implement on the Polkadot network. That’s why Kusama is known as the “Canary of Polkadot network.” Although the codes of both look the same, Kusama is much faster than Dot (Polkadot). Kusama and Polkadot are two completely separate networks that work in parallel. One of the benefits of this network is that users can vote for changes on the platform.
Is Kusama legal to buy in Sweden
Yes. According to an overview of fintech and crypto-assets document by the Financial Stability
Department of Sweden, cryptocurrencies are digital assets which can be bought, sold,
transferred and held and used mainly as speculative investments; which means that they are
bought in the hope that they will gain value. According to the above-mentioned document,
legislation aimed at counteracting money laundering and terrorist financing is often applicable
also for crypto-assets and related operations.
Is Kusama taxed in Sweden
Yes. According to the declaration by the Supreme Administrative Court in Sweden,
cryptocurrencies are not considered similar to foreign currencies, shares, or equities from a tax
perspective. Instead, cryptocurrencies are viewed as other assets and are taxed according to
Chapter 52 of the Swedish Income Tax Act. According to the mentioned tax act, your
cryptocurrency activity may be subject to three different types of taxes: Capital Gains Tax,
Income tax and Interest Income Tax. As could be taken from the tax act, cryptocurrency sales
are subject to capital gain tax of 30% rate on the profits you make. If you have earned crypto for
some form of service or work, then you need to pay typical income tax, but if you decide to hold
the cryptocurrency that you received, then you will need to pay capital gains tax on the profits or
losses that can happen when you sell them. If you have received crypto in the form of loan
interest or staking rewards, then you will be subject to interest income tax at a rate of 30%. It is
highly recommended to consult a professional on the details of your taxations.
After you've bought Kusama in Sweden
Most people buy cryptocurrencies to keep them as an investment. Kusama is not an exception. You can keep them in a secure wallet and sell them whenever their price rises. However, this is not as simple as it is in theory. You need to check its price every day to make sure it is growing or find out when it is the right time to sell. If you are a beginner in this world, we suggest you invest as much as you can afford to lose because the cryptocurrency world is volatile and unpredictable. Furthermore, it is better to consider an exit point for your investment to avoid losing money in case the coin didn’t do as well as you thought.
As mentioned earlier, investment is not the only thing you can do with Kusama coins. KSM is a governance token; KSM owners can use their coins to validate the network, vote on changes on the platform, and nominate validators. In addition, the KSM cryptocurrency can be used for linking to support new parachains.
